The Minister decides on the basis of information provided by the intelligence services, for example, or someone loses Netherlands nationality. Block announced the right always tests whether the Minister on good soils the nationality revoked.

The Senate voted Tuesday with two other terrorist measures. This will eliminate a person's passport or identity card automatically if the person has been given an exit ban. Also is it possible to make a reporting obligation, contact prohibition or area to impose ban to people who can be brought in connection with terrorism.
